Will I have to have 3 years of a 15% in pay to have my child support reduced ?

Q: Wanted to know, having a 15% reduction in my salary can be a cause to have my child support reduced. But is it 15% each of those 3 years or in a total of 3 years. I'm really struggling to keep up with it now, why the courts count overtime as part of my salary is a problem. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Can the mother of my child reinstate a child support Oder after we went in front of a judge together and she took me off?

Q: I was taken off of child support by the mother of my child . We have recently broken up and she's threatening me with putting me back on. The judge informed her that I can't be put back on once she makes this decision. 

Can I file to stop child support payments to my ex if my ex now makes more money than me?

Q: 6 years ago, I was ordered to pay my ex child support since I was the higher earner. Custody and visitation has changed since this order. We now share 50/50 visitation and custody. (My ex and I live in the same town a few blocks from each other so we alternate custody every other week). Also, my ex now makes about $2000 more than I do. Is it better to petition to stop the child support payments since our incomes are similar? or is it possible for me to petition for her to pay support since her income has increased? Is $2000 more considered similar incomes or considered substantial enough for the judge to consider her the higher earner and now pay child support payments? Thank you for any help you can provide.

What do I bring to a child support hearing if I have no income as a custodial parent filing for child support?

Q: I have a 2 year old with special needs and an 11 month old baby. My 2 year old goes to school for 3 hours and receives therapy at home. Which makes me a stay at home mom with no income. I live with both of my parents and my dad is the only one working and he's financially helping me out with both kids. What would I bring to court for proof of income if I don't have any income at all? 

Will the amount of child support be the same for an 18 year-old who chooses not to go to college or work?

Q: I am getting divorced in New York. My 18 year-old son is out of high school (got GED) and does not want to go to college or get a job. Basically, he sleeps during the day and hangs out at night. He said he wants to live with his father after the divorce. I know this is because he will not have to change his lifestyle living with his father, and knows I would require him to get a job or help around the house to contribute. Although I agree with NY law in supporting your children until age 21, I think the child support should be less than it is when the child is attending school and unable to work. I realize the bigger issue is my son's lack of motivation to move forward. But at the moment, I am asking about the support.

Can I claim child support if my husband has a job but isn't getting paid using his social security?

Q: My husband is the breadwinner and makes a lot of money. He has 3 duis and is claiming because he is the bread winner he can take the kids from me. My question is, can I get my kids if I can't provide shelter as of yet and can I get child support from him although he doesn't file a tax return and is not working using his social security.

Who do I contact?

Q: I took my ex husband to child support court last January. He never showed up and he was working off the books. The judge specified a very small amount he's obligated to pay weekly since they didn't have any documentation to show what his income is. I recently found out he started working on the books last April. He owes back child support. Do I need to contact the child support unit to notify them that's he now legally employed? It's been 7 months already.

Seeking to retain counsel for child support case in Westchester County Family Court.

Q: Ordered to pay $1,200.00/mn (bi-weekly payments of $600.00 to DSS) for child support in May of 2018. Custodial parent no longer receives public assistance and is requesting $800/wk, a $10,000.00 deposit for child's college fund, and payments upto the age of 26 years old. I am willing to pay additional for childcare expenses, but only if custodial parent agrees to seek employment as she is refusing to work. I also provide medical benefits to child through my employer. Trying to be fair, not abused. Thank you! 

How can I have my child support stopped if my daughter moved out to live with her boyfriend & his mother?

Q: After years of seeing her mother use control over her & I that also affected my visitations. I haven't seen my daughter in 6 yrs & my daughter and mother were fighting and she moved out 2 months ago. She still attends H.S. with a 3.7 GPA and turns 18 in Jan & graduates june 2019. She want the child support paid directly to her and I'm more than willing if I can get it terminated and pay until age 21. So far my ex-wife haven't even told me that our daughter moved out and I see why because she wants to keep collecting the child support $607 bi-weekly.
